P3 S/V60 change list by year?

Post by Kara503 » Sun Dec 29, 2019 11:31 am

Do we have a by the year list of major changes and known problems for these models in the USA?

For starters, and I only went up to 2015 because I have no interest in Drive- E:
2010- S60 doesnt exist?
2011- S60 introduced
2012- Many s60 T5 models have oil consumption issues- telltale sign as diagnosed by the dealer is a red dipstick. (Do we have an engine SN range to avoid, or just the model year?)
2013- ?
2014- Split facelift year. Facelifted cars receive a new instrument cluster, front and rear bumpers and lights.
2015- V60 introduced to USA. Split year- vehicles with Drive-E later in the year now have an inline 4 with electric assist and auto start/ stop. Drive-E vehicles are NOT Compatible with ViDA 2014D, the last commonly available version of the diag software.
